Organizations that use virtual desktop interface (VDI) environments such as Citrix and VMware regularly cite VDI printing issues as the biggest downside of these virtual solutions. It’s easy to see why problems exist. There are a lot of moving parts to contend with in any VDI infrastructure, and there are usually just as many moving parts in most print infrastructures. Put the two together and you’ve created a situation where there are bound to be complex incompatibilities and issues that demand VDI printing solutions.
Unfortunately, most VDI printing solutions on the market today feel like bolted-on afterthoughts. Either they don’t mesh seamlessly with the VDI solution itself or they have an idiosyncratic workflow that trades ease of use for the resolution of a small number of the more glaring VDI printing issues.
At PrinterLogic, we don’t think VDI printing solutions have to be compromises. You can have a VDI printing solution that integrates seamlessly with your VDI environment and you can address all your VDI printing issues while enjoying greater ease of use. And the reason we’re so confident about this is because our next-generation enterprise print management solution is the proof.
Once you’ve implemented our print management solution (and its speed of deployment is incredible, by the way), you have three different options when it comes to provisioning printers in Citrix with PrinterLogic:
This flexibility is one of the many areas where PrinterLogic shines relative to other VDI printing solutions. And when managing printers with PrinterLogic in VMware, its flexibility and feature set are similar:
No matter which VDI environment you prefer, PrinterLogic bests other VDI printing solutions by virtue of its seamlessness and its ability to target the fundamental causes of VDI printing issues.
